Using fresh, new downloads keeps creating exciting—plus, it keeps my projects up-to-date with the most current trends! However, the newest downloads don't always lend themselves to the pictures I currently have to scrap or the hybrid projects I'm working on. But wait, maybe they DO . . . using the recoloring tools I can use any download, on any project and I'm not bound to the color theme! Whoo Hoo!

Today I'm in LOVE with the possibilities of the Love is All Around Kit and This and That Retro Fresh Embellishments combined together with the wonderful recolor tool! I've created a card and a layout to share with you, from just these two downloads.

I'll be honest; I'm a terrible scrapbooker (if there is such a thing LOL). Because I started way after my children were born, I'll never able to catch up and scrap their lives from birth to high school. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this boat, right? I decided long ago not to beat myself up about it. So I create pages around memories in no particular order.

This page is a memory I want my daughter to remember forever. It screams of her HARD work and determination! This team didn't win every competition, but they did rise from a level two to a level four team, in just eight short months. The title of the page says just that, "Allatoona Jr Bucs, now with MORE awesome!" These are the kind of reasons I scrap. So, I hope if any of you are in my boat, you'll start small but you'll START and never feel bad about where you are on the journey!

This card uses the Love is All Around Kit exclusively.

New downloads are the perfect way to create a "last minute" card when you've run out of time to order new paper and stamps. Just design, print, and assemble.

Or you can design projects with downloads before you start cutting up all the pretty paper you hoard . . . you know you do it, too!

I just Love all the possibilities new downloads offer.

You are so right; there is no such thing as a terrible scrapbooker. We all do what we can! :) And look at how you so beautifully documented your daughter's cheer team! She will treasure that forever. I love your recolored embellishments. It's a fun way to completely change the look to fit your style or photos. Great job, Mandy!
